– When you are considering what price to list your home at, choose a number that does not end in triple zeros. Studies have shown that homes listed at prices ending in 000, like 200,000, wind up selling for less money than homes that have prices ending in 500. One small adjustment could make a big difference in your overall profit.

HELPFUL HINT! During large-scale renovations, astute homeowners will locate the master bedroom suite on the first floor of the house. This is contrary to home-building tradition but it is increasingly popular in the modern real estate market.

– When remodeling your real estate remember to stay tech savvy. Creating an infrastructure within your investment property, such as high speed cable and wireless systems can make the value of the property go way up. As society becomes more dependent on technical devices, the demand for these upgraded properties increases.

– If you plan on staying put and living in your home for a while, meaning the next five years or more, then now would be an excellent time to do some home improvements. Costs are at an all time low as contractors and skilled tradesmen are short on work and aggressively seeking clients.

HELPFUL HINT! Do not get too emotional about the sale of your house. If you can detach yourself from your house during the process, it will help you think more clearly and approach the sale as a business transaction instead of it being the sale of your home.

– If you are selling your house, and a buyer is asking you to show when it is inconvenient for you, do so anyway. You need to be flexible, and cater to what they are asking. If you can not do this, you could be turning someone away who may have bought your house.

– If you have to live in your home while you are trying to sell it, get rid of the clutter as much as possible. When potential buyers walk through your home, they are naturally trying to imagine how their furnishings and decorations will look and fit in the space. If there is excessive stuff already there, they will not be able to do this, and your chances of a quick sale decrease.

HELPFUL HINT! When you are trying to sell your home, pay attention to the reality of the market. If your home has been on the market for a long time with little interest, chances are your asking price is too high.

– If you are showing your home at night, turn on all of the lights. It appeals to buyers when your home seems welcoming. You should turn on all lights, indoor and outdoor. Turning on the lights can add color to your home. It can also give a warming effect. With all of the lights on, the buyers will be able to see all of your house easily and conversely, when showing your home in the daylight hours, letting natural light into your house when buyers are inside, will make your house appear cleaner and more natural. It will make the property seem very comfortable and will make the selling process a little easier. Everyone is drawn to a home that seems to have a lot of natural light coming in.

HELPFUL HINT! When trying to sell your real estate on the short sale, look into new regulations on how to sell the property. In the past, many people had to go into default on their mortgage, in order for the bank to consider a short sale.

– Improving your home’s curb appeal will help you to sell your residence faster. Your lawn is one of the first things a buyer sees as they pull up to your house, and it is one of the last things they see as they leave. Your yard can make a huge impression on the buyer’s overall feeling about the house. Repair your driveway and tidy your yard to make a good impression.
